  • Welcome to High Desert School, the home of the Hawks.

    Posted by Administration on 9/6/2016

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Welcome to High Desert School, the home of the Hawks. The teachers and staff at High Desert are committed to providing a safe, supportive and academically rigorous learning environment for all students. Expectations for academic achievement and behavior are high. We have exploratory and elective options in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM).

    The Medal of Honor Program is a priority in our school and district. The core values from the program enhance students’ character development, and support our policies and programs by focusing on student responsibility for his/her own behavior and academic progress.

    The support and involvement of parents are key elements of our strong school program. Together, students, parents, teachers, school support-staff, and the community form a partnership that provides a solid foundation for success in learning and enriches the school environment. We believe that working together, every student can be successful. We are very proud of our High Desert students, and look forward to continuing to support them in soaring towards excellence!



    Lynn David
